General: Missed entire 2005-06 season due to a pair or surgeries...expected to add depth in the backcourt at point guard...from Haddonfield, N.J., an area that produced Tim Bieg '01, the point guard on two of Lafayette's NCAA Tournament teams.

2005-06: Did not play due to preseason and in-season surgery.

High School: A quick, gutsy player who played in the NJSIAA tournament with a broken wrist...helped lead Haddonfield to consecutive Group 2 New Jersey state titles... averaged 14.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game as a senior...earned Second Team All-South Jersey honors from the Philadelphia Inquirer and Third Team All-South Jersey and Second Team All-Group 2 honors from the Newark Star Ledger...was a three-year varsity starter who played along 7-1 classmate Brian Zoubek (Duke).
